Israeli forces are continuing their assault on Gaza. Israeli navy commandos killed at least four Palestinians on Monday of this week when they opened fire on a boat near the coast of Gaza.
The Israelis claimed that the Palestinians “were on their way to carry out an attack in Israel”. They had no evidence and could give no details about how the military had identified those killed.
They followed up the attack with an air strike on so-called “terrorists” in Gaza. At least one Palestinian was seriously injured.
